The Tie & Dye is a hippie chic decorative trend that is on the rise. Gradients of colors are inviting everywhere in the house: walls, furniture but also decorative objects. Zoom on a Tie and Dye decor for my house...
What is Tie & Dye?
Tie & Dye is a style that was discovered during the 1970s. In the textile field, the game of color gradients is obtained by knotting a piece of fabric ("tie" in English) before plunging the latter into dye ("dye" in English). Today, we find the Tie & Dye not only on the linen but also on the wallpapers, the walls not to mention the carpets. The colors come together in a very harmonious way to compose a typical seventies atmosphere.
A festival of colors
Originally, the Tie & Dye reflected intense colors, warm tones. Nowadays, we find mostly soft colors, for a romantic atmosphere. In any case, it's a style that adapts to any interior: modern, plush, traditional or retro.
And if the fashion is rather neutral tones, these can very well be combined with touches of bright colors to establish a deco of character. Among the essential colors of the moment, we find yellow, blue or pink but also gray or brown.
A Tie and Dye decor for my home
Thanks to the Tie & Dye, the color and gradient games guarantee a chic effect and resolutely trend. In the bedroom, in the dining room or in the living room, they are found at the level of curtains, sheets, plaids, carpets, tablecloths...
In the kitchen, you can bet on Tie & Dye tableware services. Anyway, the total look Tie & Dye is to be avoided. It is better to create the contrast and mix styles to showcase the overall decor of the house.
Do it yourself!
The good news for those with a creative talent is to create yourself Tie & dye parts. Whether it is fabrics or furniture, the principle is simple. We can repaint old furniture too rustic to customize them. To begin, repaint all the furniture in white. Then paint its drawers in three or four shades of the chosen color (pink, yellow, blue or gray). To create Tie & Dye fabrics, you have to rely on natural fabrics such as cotton or linen. The fabric has to be rolled up in such a way as to obtain a tight spiral before plunging it into a salty dye, the salt optimizing the fixation of the pigments.
